A former Norwalk woman was arrested Tuesday afternoon on an allegation she sold several types of tablets to a confidential informant.

Rachel C. Mock, 28, now of Bowling Green, was arrested about 4:10 p.m. after a controlled drug buy.

"Ms. Mock sold prescription medication to a confidential informant in the parking lot of Gardner's SuperValu grocery store. She was arrested without incident after a traffic stop was conducted a short time after she left the parking lot," Norwalk Police Detective Sgt. Jim Fulton said.

"Mock sold four Clonazepam 1 mg tablets, six Diazepam 10 mg tablets and five amphetamine/dextroamphetamine 30 mg tablets to the confidential informant," Fulton said.

Clonazepam and Diazepam are Schedule II controlled substances. Amphetamine/dextroamphetamine is a Schedule IV controlled substance.

Mock was charged with three counts of trafficking in drugs. Each of the third-degree felonies is punishable by one to five years in prison.

Officers searched Mock as part of her arrest when she was booked into the Huron County Jail. Police reported recovering $85 from the suspect.

"This included the buy money ($55) she received from the confidential informant during the controlled buy," Fulton said.

Police seized the 1999 Ford ZX2 Mock was driving, which could be subject to forfeiture.

"This investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are likely," Fulton said.

Investigators from METRICH, a 10-county drug task force, were involved in the probe.

Bad drug dealer! Don't ever do that again!(slap on the wrist) Couple of months at the huron county hilton and off to rehab we go! Maybe a little probation, but no big deal.
Anybody wanna bet against my predictions?

@ Whisk T I would sure hope not......it seems this person has been around the block several times. How can you win the war if don't fight with anything but words? When addicts have no possessions, goals, self-respect how can a picture in the paper and their charges being public be of any kind of deterrent. They don't care. Lock them up for a very long time. Make it long enough they have plenty of time to detox! 3 for using...5 for selling...10 for 2nd offense and 20 for manufacturing. Rehab is not working. Bring back chain gangs.

We need to bring back the old wooden stocks and line the streets with them. Maybe some public humiliation will work?

I wonder if we could get Sheriff Joe Arpaio from Arizona to come and help set up some new programs? He seems to have a special touch when it comes to crime and punishment.

You know one reason I activated my account was because I was getting really tired of ignorant comments people post with these stories. And allow me to point out the ignorance I seem to be encountering.For approx.6 years I was a heroin/cocaine and crack cocaine addict myself. I lived in LA at the time so supply wasn't a problem. I was incarcerated numerous times because of my addictions. And like others who are incarcerated when A.A. or N.A. meetings were called I would attend to get out of the dorm. I would continue to use after release but carried around in my head the thought that others had made it out of the same hell I had put myself in. I finally got tired and put myself in rehab. I've been clean In Jan. I counted my 17th year clean. I have a bachelor's degree in sociology and an assoc. degree in criminal justice. I had two children after I became sober that are growing into amazing young women who plan on college at UCLA.Incarceration was NEVER a deterrent.And it never will be. These kids will never get clean unless A) they understand in their own heads of why their choosing to use and why they continue to use and B) are given reasons to stay clean. Pretty much anyone who is an opiate addict are trying to numb their emotions and feelings. I understand that people are tired of the burglaries and other crimes they're committing but what is being done is not working. When Conway first came on the bench he was shipping them out right and left to prison but now his hands are tied due to sentencing guidelines that were put into place last year. I for one would like other things attempted in our community than what were doing now. It isn't working and it won't work. So instead of all the "throw them in prison and let them rot" or "putting them in stocks" mentality why don't we make our actions speak louder than our words? These kids are someone's child. or brother or sister. Do you honestly think the families are not heartbroken seeing what's happening to their kids?It doesn't matter if they're not your kids- it's our community that is being torn apart by this.So all the negative commenters need to stop, shut their mouths, stop b****ing and do something!

Well, good for your Happy Feet....the fact remains.....the public deserves some protection in some manner from people who can not and will not work on their own issues. You want one of your lovely children killed in a traffic accident or a home invasion looking for drug money? I don't. Not yours or mine. So you stop whining about people who have strong opinions regarding addicts and abusers. Some one needs to be concerned about the regular people trying to survive and not be a burden to society. Double edged sword here.....for ONE success we have how many failures? Debate that. Our whole reality is heartbroken over this plague. I feel as persecuted as you do so get off your high horse!

AND ANOTHER POINT.......I firmly believe there is not one mother out there who would not prefer to know her child was in jail rather than homeless in some alley doing drugs. Which would you prefer? Your child locked up or risking their own lives every minute of the day because they have not seen the light as you were so lucky to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jail may not be the solution you desire but it is all we have at this point.
